    Earlier in the week it was reported that Adele will be featured on the cover of the next issue of Rolling Stone and now the British powerhouse singer has another reason to celebrate. Her latest album, 21 is the first album of 2011 to go platinum.

    21 debuted at the top of the charts, selling 350,000 copies and making it one of the biggest album debuts for 2011. In only seven weeks, Adele has been able to sell over a million albums.

    "Rolling In the Deep", the first single off of 21 has sold 610,000 units since it was released in November of 2010. PopEater reports that last week the single has gone from being number 17 to number 10, making it the first United States top 10 hit for Adele.

    Femme Fatale, the highly-anticipated album from Britney Spears, drops down to the number two spot on the charts and the LA Times Blog reports that sales for her CD are down 70%.
